The country’s information and broadcasting minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said the country’s film exhibitors association will be boycotting the Indian films.

He also said that he has instructed the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) to crack down on “made-in-India advertisements”.
